Several minority organisations in the district had called for mass protests, according to police sources.

"The protestors all of a sudden entered the railway station complex and set the platform, two-three buildings and railway offices on fire. When RPF personnel tried to stop them, they were brutally beaten up," said a senior RPF official.

"Train services have come to a halt here," he added. Muslim-dominated Murshidabad is a district bordering Bangladesh.
